posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
This year's March issue of Shogakukan's Coro Coro Comics magazine is revealing on Monday that the Puzzle & Dragons X ("Pazudora Cross") Nintendo 3DS puzzle role-playing game is inspiring a television anime series that will premiere this summer.
The game is also inspiring a manga adaptation (pictured below) by Momota Inoue (Puzzle and Dragons Z) that will premiere in the magazine's May issue, which will ship in April.
The magazine is also announcing that the Puzzle & Dragons X game is slated to ship this summer in Japan in two versions: "Kami no Shō" (God Chapter) and "Ryū no Shō" (Dragon Chapter). The game will feature a theme of "evolution" and will also feature cooperative play with friends in a cross battle. The game's protagonist is Ace (pictured left in image below) and his partner Tamazō (pictured right in image below). The television anime's staff will also animate the game's opening anime.
Gung Ho Online Entertainment released the original Puzzle & Dragons game for mobile devices in Japan in February 2012. The game franchise series previously spawned the Puzzle & Dragons Z and Puzzle & Dragons: Super Mario Brothers Edition games for Nintendo 3DS. Nintendo released both Nintendo 3DS games in the West as a bundle last May.
The game series has more than 39 million downloads. Puzzle & Dragons Z has shipped more than 1.5 million copies.
